I think there's a lot of merit in the idea that Jerry's singing was more 'soulful' in the later years, and that his age-gravelled voice opened up new depths in some songs. I don't really hear improvement in the guitar-playing though (maybe saying more with less notes, sometimes), but a lot of people argue there's more maturity in his playing as well.

Time Out Of Mind was Dylan's best since at least '75....not "ever", but it was a long time! I loved his singing on those '90s albums, a great example of what you can do with an aging croaky worn-out voice....

In fairness to Elvis C., I'm think his comment was imade n the flush of enthusiasm for the the album, considering we though, at the time, Dylan might not do another,
and that it was SO good (indeed maybe his best since Blood on the Tracks) .
In the album and the one after, Love & Theft, he used his broken ( even by his standards ) voice to often great effect , chilling sometimes ("Standing In the Doorway crying "). For me, on the last few albums, it hasn't worked as well .
